Mohamed Salah goal vs Huddersfield: The Egyptian forward scored his 20th goal of the Premier League season.
Liverpool have almost secured the position at the top of the table – at least until Sunday, as Salah scored Liverpool’s 3rd goal of the night in the 45th minute against Huddersfield.
Naby Keita scored Liverpool’s first in merely 15 seconds after kick-off, while Sadio Mane doubled the lead minutes later.
Liverpool expectedly dominated the possession and Huddersfield couldn’t match their intensity throughout the first half.
As things stand, Jurgen Klopp’s side has taken a two-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table.
Mohamed Salah goal vs Huddersfield:
The Egyptian forward coolly lobbed one over the Huddersfield goalkeeper to give Liverpool a three-goal cushion at the end of the halftime.
Salah took advantage of Lossl leaving his goal to clear the ball. However, Trent-Alexander Arnold’s pass was controlled brilliantly by the forward as he lobbed the ball over the goalkeeper’s head.
Huddersfield’s defenders couldn’t stop the ball from going into the goal.
Take a look:
Salah beats Lossl to an inviting ball over the top and dinks it into the net!
